Do Manitoba Harvest products contain any known allergens?
Manitoba Harvest products do NOT contain any of the top nine allergens. (The top nine allergens are peanuts, milk, wheat, soy, fish & seafood, eggs, tree nuts, sesame seeds and sulphites.)
Why are some of the Hemp food batches different shades of green?
At Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & Oils they create their products fresh and to ensure this, they run small batches of the product. Depending on the seed in that batch the green shade may be slightly darker or lighter. Because their products are Non-GMO (not genetically modified) each seed in each hemp field will be slightly different.
How do serving sizes work on Manitoba Harvest product nutritional panels?
The serving size of Manitoba Harvest products is determined by one of their contracted laboratories following the methodologies required by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (Canada) and the Food & Drug Administration (US).
These regulatory bodies require all information to be precisely measured, meaning that one tablespoon must be a level measuring tablespoon and then weighed on a laboratory scale. Due to the difference in density, it is possible that different products have different weights even though the volume (i.e. 3 tablespoons) may be the same.
What does 'Best Before' mean on your packaging?
The 'best before' date on their packaging is related to food quality, not food safety. The best before date is meant to indicate when the product still has optimum taste and nutrition (provided it is stored per the instructions on the label). Once a product has been opened and exposed to oxygen, the product quality (taste and nutritive value) will decline over time.
What is the difference between Manitoba Harvest's protein powders?
They have developed their protein powder line-up so that there is a product option for a variety of needs and uses. For example, looking for a raw food hemp protein - try HEMP PRO 50. Wanting to add more fiber to your diet, try HEMP PRO FIBER. Like something with flavor - try Organic Vanilla or Dark Chocolate hemp protein powder. Or wanting a convenient water-soluble concentrate packed with protein, great for a pre or post workout shake - there's HEMP PRO 70.
